Bisate Lodge Rwanda located amongst the volcanoes of this beautiful country

A luxury lodge with a vision and a view, Bisate Lodge Rwanda combines the ultimate primate safari experiences with their pioneering goal of reforestation and community partnership. Owned and operated by Wilderness Destinations, Bisate has been a firm favourite and one of Africa's most forward-thinking new luxury safari establishments.

Welcome to Bisate Lodge, the ultimate luxury accommodation for travellers seeking an unforgettable experience in the heart of Rwanda's natural wonders. If you're looking for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that combines comfort, style, and sustainability, Bisate Lodge is a perfect choice.

Perfectly nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Mountains, Bisate Lodge offers a unique blend of luxury and adventure. The lodge lies adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, in a natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, with dramatic views of Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes rearing up through Afro-alpine forests. Bisate is Rwanda's first genuinely luxurious and eco-sensitive safari camp, centred on Africa's most immersive wild primate experience.

Reflecting the rich culture of rural Rwanda, Bisate Lodge boasts six opulent en-suite forest villas, which maximise comfort and views while adhering to environmentally responsible principles. The six spacious and elegantly designed spaces are carefully positioned to provide maximum privacy and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Each villa features a cozy fireplace, a private deck, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom, ensuring that you have all the creature comforts after exploring the wonders of Rwanda.

Bisate Lodge activities showcase the best of Rwanda's natural wonders and cultural heritage. Their expert guides will take you on unforgettable hikes through the breathtaking National Park, where you have a chance to observe rare and endangered wildlife, including the golden monkey, side-striped jackal, serval, black-fronted duiker, elephant, and bushbuck. You can also explore the park on a thrilling mountain bike ride or take a leisurely walk through the nearby local communities to learn about the local culture and way of life.

Bisate Lodge is within easy driving distance of the Park Headquarters, where gorilla treks depart daily in groups of up to eight. Considered a top-order bucket-list experience, encountering one of the highly endangered mountain gorilla groups while on a primate safari in the nearby Volcanoes National Park is a truly unique experience. Gorilla Trekking is the pinnacle activity when visiting this area, and Bisate offers excellent facilities to undertake these primate safaris in comfort.

In addition to safari activities, Bisate offers world-class dining experiences featuring locally sourced ingredients and expertly crafted dishes. Bisate Lodge's on-site spa offers a range of treatments designed to rejuvenate and refresh your mind, body, and soul, ensuring that you return home feeling refreshed and revitalised.

When you stay at Bisate Camp, you are not only enjoying a luxurious and unforgettable experience, but you are also supporting sustainable tourism and community development in Rwanda.
